Women are called to be the conduit of God’s love to our husbands and children.

Our first step is to align ourselves with God’s priorities

How to make a priority list

•    This process will lead you to an understanding of why you must lead your children to God.

•    You can choose to sit down with your husband and write separate lists or brainstorm together.  Use whatever style best fits your relationship.

•    Your first draft will need revising.  Make sure your most important items are at the top.  Define what you mean so that both parents can completely comprehend their joint decisions.

.    Start the process of purposely and systematically developing your children into God’s image

.   Post your list somewhere visible to your husband and you daily.

•    At this point you need to make a plan to carry out your priorities as a team.  When you need help ask and it shall be given.  And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.  Matthew 21:22.

•    Pray together with your spouse for guidance.

 

Example of your first draft: Shaping my child list/ What do you want for your child?

•   Able to talk with authority

–   Sense of belonging

–   Knowledge of where they come from

–   Passion

 

•    Mother ( this was my list of desires for my children)

–   Loved

–   Kind/caring

–   Able to survive on their own

–   Happy

–   Liked

–   A good father or mother

•   Attentive to their children

•   Able to provide for their family

•   Can teach their children about God

Final draft: What I want for my children

•    My child will have a personal relationship with God.  I will teach my child facts about God and more importantly how to form a relationship with God.  When this is fulfilled:

•   He/she will have peace in the face of  all challenges

•   He/ she will be kind/caring and giving

•   They will be able to provide for their family because God will give them their daily bread

•   They will have eternal life and their eyes will be on heaven and not earth

•   They will have true wisdom that only comes from God, granting them a perspective rarely seen on earth.  This perspective will grant them improved ability to deal with life’s problems; embrace life’s joy and give them confidence.

•   They will know who they are and Whose they are.

•   They will know a love and peace that passes human understanding.

•   The Spirit of Truth will live within them their counselor, comforter and teacher.  They will never be alone.
